Puffed Eggs for Dinner, Anyone?

I love this article and video about puffed eggs from Colonial Williamsburg's historic food blog. I've eaten eggs many ways for many meals, but I haven't seen eggs made this way before! Eggs weren’t just for breakfast in the 18th century. In fact, they were often a side dish to a meal, and not just relegated to the morning as in today’s modern world. More than 20 egg dishes can be found in the French Family Cook alone! Our Rare Breeds [...] Click here to view original web page at recipes...

Coffee Recipes from 1915

This group of interesting coffee recipes was published in the November 15, 1915 edition of the Daily Public Ledger in Maysville, Kentucky. We think of coffee as being that hot or iced drink that gives us the necessary kick in the morning to get moving ... or, maybe that kick to get through the mid-afternoon slump. Some might use instant coffee is cakes or cookies, but these recipes provide a far wider use of the caffeinated cup of Joe. The coffee recipes include coffee jelly, coffee mousse, ...

Brand Name Recipes: Lemon Freeze

I've recently started rifling through my recipe clippings from my mom, grandma, and JD's grandma. I have recipe boxes ... and Christmas shirt boxes full of them! Some are "back of the box" or brand name recipes while others are simply recipe clippings from newspapers and old magazines. I'm trying to archive the ones I remember from childhood ... and some unique ones as well. So, on Thursdays, in honor of the throw-back-Thursday craze, I'll feature one on Rooted in Foods. When I can date ...

5 Scrumptious Weekend Breakfast Ideas

I love breakfast, but only on the weekend when I have time to really cook. I married a bacon and fried egg man, but I prefer breakfast that's a little less ... well ... bacon and eggy! Here's a round-up of some of my favorite weekend breakfast ideas. They're kid tested ... Mama approved!   Morning Baked Oatmeal with Berries and Coconut from Stephanie Stiavetti at The Culinary Life.

Vegetable Beef Soup

Waste not, want not. I learned this lesson well! Every time I make Italian beef, I use the leftover broth to make vegetable beef soup. It's a great way to add rich flavor to this classic soup ... and not waste savory broth.  When I make soup, I make enough to last several days. I almost never have enough broth left from the Italian Beef to make enough vegetable beef soup to last that long. I add beef stock and a little red wine to the broth to extend the amount. The rest is easy ...

Christmas Granola Recipe

Every year at Christmas time, I try to give something homemade to my "mirror", Steph. Steph and I exchange yummy goodies all year long, so it's becoming a tad difficult to find new treats. This year, however, I decided to make granola from scratch. I've never made it, but this recipe is definitely going on the annual treat making list!  I became hooked on muesli during my first trip to Germany a few years ago. The hotel we were staying in served it for breakfast ...

Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree

Christmas morning is a madhouse ... it certainly was when I was a kid and it still is now that I have a kid ... and dogs! The last thing a mom wants to deal with is breakfast. Okay, at least this mom. Try this easy Christmas tree made from cinnamon rolls to make the morning feeding a little easier! The Davis Cinnamon Roll Tradition   We always had cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas morning. They're easy ... either make them a day ahead or cheat and buy the kind in a can or ...

Banana Cake with Buttery Almonds

  My grandma's 1963 Good Housekeeping Cookbook is my cooking bible ... it has been since I received it as a wedding present. I have adapted my favorite banana bread recipe into a moist banana cake. Nearly every woman in my family has received a copy of this cookbook ... not all got the 1963 version, though! I grew up with this cookbook, and I made my first banana bread recipe from this cookbook. Albeit, I am much better at it today than I was at age 11.  Every time I have ...
